Richhill singer-songwriter, Warren Attwell, is off to perform in Nashville on St Patrick’s Day.
Warren’s schedule is about to get busy, as he is due to travel to the USA’s mecca of music just after his performance at next week’s 11th United Airlines Belfast Nashville Songwriters’ Festival. He will perform on St Patrick’s day in Nashville alongside three more of Northern Ireland’s finest emerging singer-songwriters, supported by funding from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and United Airlines.
The annual concerts in March features the USA’s top up-and-coming artists and this year he and three other NI musicians will be performing in the renowned Bluebird Café, which is famed for breaking in new talent. During their time in Nashville, the musicians will not only get the opportunity to showcase their music to a USA audience, but they will also meet with publishers, music agents and managers.
“The Belfast Nashville Songwriters’ Destival is a fantastic event, showcasing and developing our local established and emerging talent,” stated Maria McAlister, Arts Development Officer at the Arts Council of NI.
“To play at the Bluebird Café is an experience that few forget and I wish all the songwriters every success in their trip to perform at the city of music.”
Catch Warren before he jets off, at the 11th United Airlines Belfast Nashville Songwriters’ Festival, which features over 100 songwriters across 40 events.
